I believe in teaching strong fundamentals so that we can have a solid foundation to build on. Good tone and an understanding of embouchure are most important, and we will develop technique. I enjoy helping students achieve their goals and develop their talents.

My son was very happy with his first lesson with Victoria. He had been away from the flute for several months, and was eager to return. So far she accessed his level, and they picked up where he left off with his previous lessons. He's pleased and says that she is teaching him at his learning edge.
Megan J.
Victoria is a fantastic teacher. I am an adult who picked up the flute some years ago. This year I decided to be disciplined and seek out a teacher. I started to see a difference in my ability immediately. After around 6 months I can say that I am further along than I ever thought I would be. She's respectful and a lot of fun. Sign up and go see her already!!

Victoria is a very sweet, patient teacher.

I have taught piano off and on since I was a teenager and consecutively for the past five years. I enjoy children ages 5 and up, beginners and intermediates, and beginning adults. I choose the curriculum according to the student's age, ability, learning style and choice. My primary goal is for the students to have a positive experience with piano and to look forward to coming each week so that they will want to continue piano or another instrument in the future. I have a lot of incentives for the students and experience much success in this area. I charge very low fees as some clients are unsure of their ability to learn at first. I am very flexible, patient and non-judgmental, and I love what I do.

I live on the west side of the valley and teach in my home. It is a warm, open, family-oriented environment and I welcome siblings to come and play with toys or read while the other is in the lesson. We have a recital at the end of the school year, held in my home.

Great first lesson, really excited to continue learning from Judy!

Judy had my son up and playing in no time. She was great about setting a pace that will keep him challenged and confident simultaneously. He loves his lessons and looks forward to learning more. My youngest, after observing a class, has decided he would like to play too!

My background in clarinet performance is quite unique in that I began studying clarinet as a senior in high school, rather than as a middle schooler like most. This forced me to improve at a much accelerated pace as I worked through my undergrad degree in clarinet performance. This involved a very aggressive approach to practicing and performance that focuses on fundamentals like embouchure, articulation and breathing, while also studying a wide range of clarinet repertoire. I apply this approach to my clarinet teaching allowing students of all ages to make very quick improvement as a clarinetist while also learning about music theory, music history and developing a love for music that will last well beyond their time as my student.

I earned a Bachelors degree in clarinet performance from Central Washington University class of 2020 and I'm currently a Graduate Assistant at the University of New Mexico pursuing my Masters in clarinet performance.

I have been playing piano since the age of six. Originally classically trained, I made a change to learning Jazz after hearing it on the radio one night while still in high school.

I began my teaching career in 2007, providing private piano instruction to beginners at a small, privately owned music school in Laurel, Maryland.

After the school closed it's doors in the Fall of 2011, I continued working with many of the students privately. It is these efforts I continue to this day.

Having the opportunity to work 1 on 1 with students and see their progression and development on a week to week basis is a truly, rewarding experience that I feel fortunate to be a part of.

*** Lesson Details ***
Although the approach you take with each student will be different, basic standard requirements will consist of:

1) Being able to locate notes on the piano in relation to middle C

2) Being able to recognize notes on the staffs and play them in the correct locations on the ...

Ian is a wonderful piano instructor. My 6 year old has been with Ian for some time now and I must say his patience is exceptional. He teaches in ways that my son can easily remember and makes the lesson fun. My son always looks forward to his piano lessons and he has learnt a lot in 2 months. I have had some experience with piano instructors but Ian is exceptional. I highly recommend him as an instructor to other children

I have been teaching guitar for more than 15 years.
Every student is unique. We all have different ways of learning and retaining information: by rote, from a printed score, by ear, etc... Each student is interviewed and consulted to gain an understanding of how they learn most effectively and to create customized private lessons on the guitar.
For classical guitar, there again are strict technical guidelines to achieve a beautiful tone and effective movement. To supplement my private instruction, I use different method of books and others for technical training and basic music theory as they relate to the guitar.

About Kelvin

I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis. I am very comfortable with all aspects

"Christopher is an excellent instructor. I had a little acoustic guitar experience before I asked him to help me with electric guitar. Not only did he create custom lessons based on my experience, he also anticipates mistakes that can be made and prepares me for them. His knowledge of guitar music theory shows through when he is instructing. I know Chris will be the guy who can help me take my guitar skills to the next level."
